Colour Create challenge

Hi everyone hope you've had a good day. It's been a lovely day here, a little bit on the windy side but otherwise very nice. I've spent all day in the garden. Went out to cut the lawn and ended up cutting back shrubs, weeding and staining the fence. Then I took some rubbish to the waste site. Hard work but I felt I had really achieved something so it was worth while.

Now the card I made for the Colour Create challenge, which is to use Green and Blue with the option of paper piecing. I decided to combine this challenge with Wendy's sketch.

The base card is made from Bazzill Bling. The layers are blue bazzill, the circles and squares design is cut from Papermania cards and the gingham is from Crafters Companion's Cute Companions by Jayne Nestorenko. The cute little mouse is also from the Cute Companions stamps and I pieced the dress and present. The flower is mountboard triple embossed with cosmic shimmer embossing powders (sorry can't remember which colours as it was made some time ago). The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon and brad from stash.

Thank you for visiting and please come back again soon.
